Influx of cheap motorbikes in Haiti multiplies mayhem on already lawless roads | Fox News


Haiti Motorcycle Madness-4Joseph-Marc Carel knows the danger of ferrying passengers on his small motorbike, sometimes two at a time, as tides of the buzzing vehicles cut through the chaotic Haitian capital. He has a prosthetic leg to prove it.

Carel would like to find a job that’s safer than driving a two-wheeled taxi in Port-au-Prince, but he knows he’s unlikely to find one that pays anything close to the $50 a week he can earn with his battered motorbike.

“It doesn’t look good,” he said, gesturing at the shattered reflectors and dented red gas tank as he revved the sputtering engine, “but it’s mine.” via | Fox NewsHaiti Motorcycle Madness-1.
